Frogs making music in a Split System…


Croaking split systems in Townsville !




Hi everyone, I have come across frogs in split systems. Probably cooling off in the cool drain water. Try to prevent a big mess developing inside your split system. Get them cleaned yearly before mould stains the plastic and residents leave their marks behind. Your home will be more healthier. It may look ok from the outside…but behind the covers is where the real nasties hide.65189_491271970896127_1039921819_n.jpg

Why people choose a Tradesperson … because it makes a difference!

** Who cleans your airconditioners? ….Read more…
Kevin Chun Tie is a qualified Airconditioning & Refrigeration Tradesperson who has specialised in cleaning domestic split systems and box type units in Townsville for more than 5 years in his own business. Having completed his apprenticeship at Philips Service and Allens Industries in 1974, he carried out service repair and maintenance works on many domestic homes, commercial buildings and Industrial plants in Townsville and surrounds.

Kevin says: In those days, we used to do multiple aspects of our trade like Airconditioning, Refrigeration, Commercial Installation. We installed large central aircon plants and commissioned them for use. We also did Marine refrigeration, car airconditioning, Beer temprites on trawlers and Hotels. Some buildings he has worked on are: The Aquarius, Norqeb, News Ltd, ANZ Bank, Commonwealth Bank, Bank of NSW, Heli Hangar at Raaf Base, Ingham & Burdekin Sugar mills, Collinsville Power Stn. Aircon systems was used to dry the raw sugar while being processed.

Kevin also operated his own business servicing refrigerators for the Defense Housing Authority for Army & RAAF Married quarters here in Townsville. In 1985, he was the Duty Engineer at the Sheraton Breakwater Casino Hotel. He monitored and did service work to all essential services in the building. The aircon system was a chilled water type with Computer Energy management System to monitor load shedding of electricity in the building. He says: It had 2 main Chiller units of 650 Ton (refrigeration capacity). Each chiller could aircon 65 homes. The current power was 150 amps AC per chiller when operating. (Solar panels could help)

Kevin saw a need for the domestic type aircons to be maintained and cleaned to extend their duty cycle and operating performance.
He thought and devised a system to clean the units in the home. As he was used to working in a “Five Star” Hotel and not a construction or mine site, his attitude of working safe, clean & tidy. His Key Employee licence at the hotel - Casino had background checks back to last 10 years by the govt. (The Casino dealers CE Licence was a 5 year backgroud check) As Kevin had access to sensitive areas like surveillance and hard count rooms, checks were more in depth. Customers are assured as owner operator, their home is safe while Kevin is working on their airconditioners.

When Kevin is cleaning the aircons, he is also checking the system for possible problems that may be there or could arise. A lot of times, people do not know there is a problem until he notices it. Kevin looks at it through the eyes of a tradesperson (not just an aircon cleaner) to ensure it is functioning properly.

He says: some times there are problems with the outdoor unit or gas. Power isolator switches can be faulty. Sometimes these switches can be turned off with power of 240 V still at the indoor unit. It is important to use a qualified tradesperson where possible rather than a person who is not trade qualified. There are certain safety procedures to be aware of when cleaning domestic airconditioners, especially split systems. Some circuit breakers control multiple room aircon units. Incorrect testing procedures could result in a fatality of an electric shock. Qualified Tradespersons are aware of these things. How can a unqualified person be aware of what they have not learnt. Price is not an issue, getting a unqualified tradesperson at a low price to clean your aircons may not be a safe and smart decision.

Kevin is Trade Qualified, he can give you “5 Star” Service, and most of his business is by referral or word of mouth with various advertising. You could say: ” Kevin is the best kept secret in Townsville” He gives “5 STAR service” to his customers with cleaning their airconditioners.

Get your Split Systems cleaned for 2013 summer.

Dirty fan in split

The new year is under way with heavy rain weather boosting the humidity.

Aircons will sweat, leak water and not cool efficiently if the filters, cooling coils, drains and blower fans are dirty.

The mold can also set off allergies related to hayfever and asthma.

Dirty and inefficent units use more power to run resulting in higher electricity bills.

Give Kevin a call on Mobile 0410 388 392 and get your aircon working better.

Winter Airconditioner Service

The summer heat is getting less intense lately. However, we still get those hot days now in June. The cooler months between June to October is a good time to get your split systems and box type airconditioners cleaned. The mold and dust accumulated during the summer period should be attended to before the christmas period. It also gets more busy at that as it gets hotter and visitors are coming for the festive season.

Some manufacturers now require your airconditioners get cleaned each year to maintain full warranty. If you haven’t had your airconditioner checked, cleaned or serviced in the last 2 years, it would be a worthwhile consideration. A clean airconditioner will perform more efficiently, save power costs, smell fresh and be less irritating for asthma and sinus sufferers. The fan area can get layers of dust and mold growing on the blower louvres. This circulates the dust particles and mold spores around the room. Most homes are closed up all day and very little fresh air is circulated throughout the house. Young children and babies are more prone to sickness associated with dust and mold. To minimise mold growth, let more fresh air and sunlight into the rooms. The air filters should be washed clean each 2 months during the summer months.

Dirty airconditioners could be causing hayfever, fatigue, sore throat and sore, dry eyes. These days, most Australians spend up to 90% of their time indoors, it is a growing concern. After work or on weekends, open up your windows and let fresh air circulate around the house for a while. It will help improve the air quality in your home.

You can improve the air quality in your home for your family. Simply give Kevin a call now on 0410 388 392.

Air conditioning and Mould

What makes mould grow so fast? If a house which was up for sale and is left unoccupied, the power turned off and the curtains drawn, it is a dark, warm and damp condition for which mould spores can thrive in. An empty house has little sunlight entering due to drawn curtains and closed doors.

In summer, higher humidity levels exist in the house with air conditioning off as opposed to leaving the air conditioner on at a economy setting. Whilst the conditioning mode is on, the house is being cooled and moisture is removed from the air and recirculated through the filters in the unit. Mould is very active when humidity levels reach 70% or more.

As mentioned earlier, mould thrives in warm, dark and humid conditions. As Townsville has high humidity levels, home owners should let more sunlight into the house and open windows and doors for a period to let fresh air flow throughout the living areas.

Seasonal Maintenance … Get your air conditioner checked early.

Each season before or after summer, it is a real good idea to have your split system or wall air conditioner checked. Older air conditioners have a operational life expectancy of 8 to 12 years. A yearly check or clean on your air conditioner may identify potential problems with the system which can help extend the life expectancy by a few more years. TCSNQ checks for a dirty coil or obstructed ventilation on outdoor unit, visible signs of refrigerant leaks, air filters, condensate water flows, interior unit is clean on the cooling coil as well as the air vents and fan area. A system low on gas, has restrictions to air flow or is not draining water properly will not function at optimal levels and will cost you more to run and take longer to cool the room or house. An air conditioner not maintained can be a real health hazard for the family, asthma and allergy sufferers, plus higher running costs.

It’s cool to keep split systems cleaned

Split systems can reduce the heat in your home quite effectively - and in a word that’s “cool”. But they can also cause health problems for your family and that’s definitely not so “cool”. Dirt and bacteria collecting inside the system can be a real health concern. Cleaning the air filters is good but not enough. A lot of people don’t realize how dirty the units are once the covers come off. The main culprits are the splits in the main bedroom and lounge area as they are used more often.

Higher power bills are caused by clogged coils and filters. Your airconditioner has to work much harder to cool your home. Removing the black mould and dust will improve efficiency of the system. A dirty split system could be causing hayfever, fatique, sore throat and sore, dry eyes. Cleaning and sanitising your airconditioner will leave it smelling fresh and operating more efficiently.

New split systems should be cleaned after the first 12 months to prevent dust and mould staining the parts and covers. We can give your split system a through clean. That’s a “cool” thing to do.
